My right (back) knee sucks... blew out my acl/mcl and had replacement surgery back in the late 90's and then had a meniscus (I think my medial) clean up mid 2000's.

I was actually slated for another scope this summer but I postponed it and then my MD ended up retiring from doing surgeries. I had been working on some ball exercises and got into mt biking and my knee was feeling great (no swelling, no pain outside of arthritis).. so when I met his partner who would be my new MD he suggested we see how things go.

I wanted to avoid a 3rd surgery on the same knee given i haven't even hit 35... but I just got back from a trip where I did quite a bit of surfing and hiking and shit is not right. Going for an MRI monday at a place that supposedly has a better magnet since its not easy to see things on a knee that been operated on before. Hopefully be more informative...
